Topic: Autocompleter not visible when overflowing outside parent

TheShoosh pro asked 3 years ago

Expected behavior
When autocomplete options appear, the option list should overflow outside the bounds of the parent object.

Actual behavior
The list is visible for a brief moment before being "cut off" by the bounds of the parent container.

Maybe it is just a problem with the snippet, because I copied this code to the Angular app and everything is working correctly. Does this problem occur in your Angular app as well? Are there any errors in the console?

Please make sure that you have @angular/cdk package installed.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I do have @angular/cdk installed, so no problem there. No console errors either.

Perhaps it's got something to do with the way I have nested child components... I have a parent component that contains the tabset/tabs. Within each mdb-tab I have a child component. Within that child component I have another child component, which contains the auto-completer. So in my project it looks like this...


Attached is a picture of the list being cut off.example
